BD Girl

Abby turned 5 November 13! She remembered last year and asked if there would be presents on the table when she woke up :) Of course there were :)

Sissy spent the night before her birthday with us and that made her birthday even more special!

Mommy's 5 year old!!!!

She was just thrilled to get roller skates :)

Sissy was happy to help her try them out.

And off they went :)

While Abby skated with Sissy Mommy made some birthday cake pancakes for breakfast.

My sweet birthday girl! Can't believe she is 5!

After lunch we had plans to go see the Chinese Acrobats that just happened to be in town. First Auntie L, Uncle Pete, Aunt Annetta and Cousin Josh came over to sing Happy Birthday and have cake.

Joshie made Abby a beautiful birthday picture :)

Making her wish :)

Auntie L and Sissy brought Abby the Moondough Snack Set she wanted!

Auntie L. also gave the Birthday girl 5 dollars.

Then we all minus Uncle Pete set off to see the acrobats.

My girl was so excited!

We even got a picture with an acrobat during the intermission.

Once we got home the birthday girl was all tuckered out.

After dinner and Jamies though and she was ready to play with her new Moondough.

On Monday Abby brought Birthday Big Cookies to school. She got to wear a birthday crown too :)

Happy Birthday # 5 my sweet Abba! Mommy loves you!

Referral anniversary day year # 4!

4 years really? On November 5, 2007 I saw my beautiful Abba's face for the very first time. I remember that day like it was yesterday. It was amazing and one of many more amazing wonderful days to come thanks to the wonderful gift that China gave me. I am so lucky I get to be her Mommy. Life is just better with her here. She is everything that I hoped for and then some. I can't imagine life without her. Life is good and I will be forever thankful for the red threads that brought us together!
